Self description

Male , 47

I am a journalist who have had worked for a number of prestigious media orginsations. I emigrated to the UK few years ago.

My focus in my professional life has remained mostly on politics, human rights, education, health, environment and economy. Currently, I am working freelance and spend most of my time hooked up to either my PC or Laptop. My latest interest is web designing and development.

Life experiences

Career advice

Due to my educational background and professional career I think I can help someone caught in the dillemma of career choice

Relationship

Being a person grown up in an environment interknitted in family set up and circle of friends, I know the importance of emotional support in times of stress, breakups and frustartions. I owe strong and positive points in my personality to my parents and friends and want to give it to others which other gave to me.

Employment Law advice

Somehow one of my employer and I disagreed over some contractual matters and I was left with no other option but to take the matter to the Employment Tribunal. My legal struggle in a very complex area of law coupled with lawyers' shenanigans taught me lifetime lesson that it's a capitalist society where getting rights is un uphill and sometimes frustrating task. Therefore, I can tell others that how much daunting task is it but without discouarging them of their resolve to get justice.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

Well, I was looking to do some volunteering in my spare time so that I can be of some use other than what I do for my livelihood. I stumble upon do-it site and introduced to Horsemouth. I really find the idea of online mentoring exciting.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
